Of course that's not out of the question, but I'm sure that only a VERY small percentage of the population (even in LA) drive over 200 miles per day. That is a LONG commute. Sure it's possible, but not likely.
I average 2,000 + miles per month, probably more, but I try and not put on more than 500 miles per week, and I drive a lot.
So Ed, sure it's possible to drive over 200 miles per day, but I don't really think many peopl do.
